March Madness

I always knew my dad to be a super tennis player. He won many trophies playing for the U.S. Marine Corps in the late 1950's and early 1960's. But, I didn't know about his earlier career on the basketball court. This photo was probably taken around 1928 or so, and from the front of the jerseys, I'd guess this team played for Elwood (Indiana) Junior High. Written on the back is the following:
"My brother, Bill DeHority, wrote the names on the back of the picture.
Left to right top row: Carl Renner, Ass. Coach, Don Dellinger, Bud Hefflin, Bill DeHority, Mr Bridges coach, Denver Foist, Ralph Warner, Pete Vanness.
Bottom row: Tom Lindley, Jim Frazier, Carl Sigler(?), Paul Alexander, Alvey Havens.
Very Bottom Charles DeHority"


  1. I love this photo! There were no sports players in either my husband's nor my family tree, so we'll never have photos like these. Very cool!

  2. Thanks...I love it too! The spindly little legs on the guys are just a hoot! And look at the size of that basketball!
